2:1 Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God out of the fish's belly, 2:2 And said, I cried by reason of my affliction to the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, [and] thou heardst my voice. 2:3 For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods encompassed me: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me. 2:4 Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again towards thy holy temple. 2:5 The waters encompassed me, [even] to the soul: the depth inclosed me on every side, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 2:6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars [was] about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. 2:7 When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came to thee, into thy holy temple. 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. 2:9 But I will sacrifice to thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay [that] which I have vowed. Salvation [is] of the LORD. 2:10 And the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry [land].
